I hope this is ok here. I was encouraged by some guys in the small block forum to post here. I grew up in a Mopar family. My Uncle Brad was the Chrysler Plymouth dealer in my hometown and my mom kept books for him. I spent a lot of time at the dealership when I was growing up. So, even though I haven't owned a Mopar for a while, I do have a soft spot for them. About 8 years ago, I found this car and bought it because it was fairly solid and very complete. I did a frame off restoration/hot rod build and changed directions a couple of times but from the start it was to be an all Mopar build. I have done all the sheet metal work (including the custom firewall), mechanical work, assembly, wiring, etc. The only think I farmed out was paint and finish body work and, soon to be, interior. The car now has a Fat Man Mustang II style front suspension, an 87 Dakota Rear, AX15 5 speed and a mildly modified 360 LA engine, complete with Mopar style alternator. It also has air conditioning and bluetooth stereo. I used an original 41 steering wheel, fitted AutoMeter gauges into the original instrument housing, put a motorized cowl vent in to allow space for the air conditioning and a custom paint scheme to tone down the ornate dash. The car also has a 40 DeSoto front bumper with custom filler panels which blends better with the Plymouth front end. The original headlight housings will be installed and from the outside, it will appear mostly stock. The wheels will be painted body color when I'm done. I should get the fenders and hood on it this week and get it off to the upholsterers as soon as he is ready. Hopefully, I have my engine oil leak fixed. I haven't completed tuning but it pulls hard and moves this car impressively. It should be a blast to drive when I'm done and I won't see many like it anywhere else!
